Describe the Activity:
Makers on the Move is an outreach program for middle- and high-school students, where college of engineering undergraduate students volunteer to facilitate hands-on STEM activities on the Millard Oakley STEM Center’s STEMmobile, a mobile laboratory housed in a 53’ tractor trailer. Activities, tied to State of Tennessee learning outcomes, range from how wind power works to circuitry.Students from Tennessee Tech will visit your school to teach your students about practical STEM applications. Another option is to schedule the STEM Mobile to come to your school for a hands-on activity.
Activities range from short, 20-minute experiences to longer, more in-depth experiences of 60-minutes. Explore If you are a high school teacher interested in participating in this program and inviting one of our innovative, award-winning teams or the STEMmobile, staffed by our student organizations, to your high school, please contact the Clay N.
